Research interests

My research interests are in the philosophy of mind, metaphysics and epistemology. A recent major project concerns the intersection of these areas in the philosophy of perception. In particular: which account of the nature of conscious perceptual experience is most conducive to the defence of empirical realism? A book length treatment, Perception and Its Objectswas recently published by OUP. I continue to work on the metaphysics of perception. A second major project concerns the parts and persistence of macroscopic material objects. In particular, I am interested in arguing for a robust endurantism from the fact that such objects are the mind-independent direct objects of our perception.
